Hemingways Watamu

Named after Kenya’s most famous literary visitor, Hemingways Watamu is a five-star boutique property set on the white sands of Kenya's coast.

Hemingways Watamu lies within the Watamu Marine National Park, approximately 90 miles north of Mombasa and 18 miles south of Malindi.

Hemingways is a 39-bedroom property on the pure white sands of Watamu Bay. There are also 21 one, two and four bedroom apartments, which are known as Hemingways Watamu Residences, which guests can book on a bed and breakfast, half or full board basis.

The ambience of the hotel is one of relaxed sophistication with the friendliness of a privately-owned hotel matched by the facilities and standards of an international resort. Its international cuisine is highly regarded, with attentive service to match, and staff are renowned for their courtesy and friendliness.

Watamu beach was voted by the Sunday Times as being one of the top 10 beaches in the world, there being just 4 hotels on as many miles of coast, fringed by the finest of tropical barrier reefs.

Three miles up the coast from Hemingways is Mida Creek, a tidal lagoon of mangrove waterways teeming with exotic bird-life, and the venue for fantastic sundowner cruises on an Arabic dhow, whilst out to sea there is dolphin-watching, snorkelling and diving. Add the best big-game fishing fleet in Africa with some of the most productive fishing grounds in the world, and you have a truly unique and exceptional destination for your tropical vacation.
